The 27th District needs to elect the candidate with the ability to hit the ground running in the state Senate. Rep. Jeannie Darneille is that candidate.

Darneille has served as vice-chair of the House Ways and Means Committee for the past two years. This role is essential to our state’s budgeting process, and she has commanded that post extremely well – standing up for the social safety net, education and the City of Tacoma.

Darneille will transition to the state Senate with no learning curve whatsoever, and her reputation and authority will make the transition with her. She has accomplished great things as our representative for the past 12 years, and her outstanding leadership will continue in the Senate.

    Thanks to her we got a nice sales tax increase for all the folks in Tacoma and it was a regressive tax so it hurts the poor people the most. I don’t know why Darneille hates poor people.

    WOW – and she will be a leader as soon as we figure out what the definition of “is” is!!??

    Oh yes. She knows how to spend, spend, spend!

    If you never want this liberal state to ever have a balanced budget with savings and become like California, declaring bankruptcy – keep on voting for the spenders.

    Their philosophy has got us where we are today.

    Funny how a few states were not affected by the recession because they had balanced budgets, great planners, and set aside a savings each month. You know – kind of like real life. They didn’t get every hand-out, but they are not in any emergency mode.

    Look at where the Democrats have placed this state since they have maintained control of so many years:
